Harrison Ford has already signed up for Lucasfilm’s fifth “Indiana Jones” film, but his status as a 73 year-old means there’s understandable questions regarding his physical ability to perform stunts not just within this film but, more importantly, beyond it.
Considering how long it is between sequels in this series, it comes as no surprise that some are already speculating this new film will be the last in the series with director Steven Spielberg maybe even killing off the archaeologist character.
As part of a new feature in THR, Spielberg revealed he’s very excited to get to work on the film:
“I think this one is straight down the pike for the fans… The one thing I will tell you is I’m not killing off Harrison [Ford] at the end of it.”
Ford himself also offered a quote for the article:
“The opportunity to work with Steven again on this character which has brought pleasure to so many… Not to mention me. It’s fun, it’s great fun to play this character. It’s great fun to work with Steven, I’m looking forward to it.”
Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall will produce, David Koepp is penning the script and John Williams is expected to once again provide the music for the film which opens July 19th 2019.
